DLC menu from Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Downloadable Content (DLC) is a video game term that refers to content that is added to a game after its purchase. Some games have extra downloadable content, such as extra levels or more characters. For some games the DLC must be paid for, but for others it is free. Some Nintendo 3DS games use SpotPass to download free DLC.

List of Nintendo games with paid DLC

THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS!

The following list contains all games published by Nintendo which feature the option to purchase downloadable content, as opposed to games which either lack the option to download anything or exclusively offer free downloadable content via updates. There are five distinct types of paid DLC: 

  • Character expansions: Additional characters can be added to the game.
  • Gameplay expansions: These include additional items, quests and vehicles.
  • Level expansions: Add more areas for the player to traverse or fight on.
  • Cosmetic changes: Graphic changes or costumes.
  • In-game currency: The player can exchange real money for in-game currencies.
